Hey there and welcome to the blog!  I'm Heather, a lover of Chik-Fil-A, the ocean, anything with stripes and all things ballet!  I am a dance and portrait photographer based in the Baltimore, MD area.  This blog is where I share my latest photo sessions, tips on photography, some of my amateur attempts at home organizing and decorating, and just some fun things we want to remember as the ordinary days of family life go by. This blog has become a scrapbook of my children's lives!  Take a look around and you might see my little girls all the way back in 2007, as well as the progression of my photography business since then too!  So glad to have you here and I look forward to chatting with you!

I just love that they […]

Happy Mother’s Day to All My Heather O’Steen Photography Mommas!


Tide Point Waterfront Park Family Session Have you ever met someone before and you just kind of “click” with them??  That’s how I felt about Missy Martin! When she contacted me to do a family session with her 17-year-old beagle, I knew we got each other on a level that only fur-baby mommas can understand.  […]
